mHealth – Making Connected Healthcare a Reality
We live in a connected world today where the number of wireless subscribers is almost equal to the population of the planet. Mobile health (mHealth) is an attractive solution that leverages the ubiquity of mobile devices to address one of the most pressing global challenges – making healthcare more accessible, efficient, and affordable.
Traditionally institutional providers, physicians, home health care providers, and patients have worked in silos and due to this, both efficiencies of the system and quality of care have suffered. Smartphones and mobility within general, has opened an opportunity for the healthcare ecosystem providers to address these challenges by making the concept of connected healthcare a reality. Mobile Health (mhealth) will have a bigger impact on how care is delivered.
